Why use Letter Matching Clip Cards?
Research supports how important it is for beginning readers to practice identifying letters. Intentional, frequent, and focused opportunities to practice over an extended time (deliberate practice) facilitates automaticity with this skill. Since research also shows that learners are more motivated to do an activity that is fun and novel, Letter Matching Clip Cards is an activity that meets that criteria. These clip cards meet the goal of helping students gain automaticity in letter recognition and does it in a way that is both fun and motivational.
How to Use:
Students choose a clip card, look at the letter on the flower, and use a clothespin to clip the matching letter. Another option is to use pom poms, mini erasers, etc. to mark the matching letter. Then, they can write or color the letter on the recording sheet that you choose. For an added layer, students can put the clip cards in ABC order.
